Thanks for stopping by!
We are two house-loving DIYers now onto our second house. One of us has vision...and one has actual skills.
Design and working on our home are our major hobbies, whenever we have a few moments of free time not devoted to our daughter or jobs. We are hoping to share our ideas, triumphs and mistakes to help other DIYers and get new ideas from all of you!

Curb Appeal - Front Door and Shutters

The front of the house when we bought it had a mix of original details (porch, curved windows, original shutters) and yucky distractions (storm door..front steps...weird bushes...patchy lawn). It also just felt a little...sad. Perhaps it was the powder blue.

Brent knew he wanted to strip and refinish the front door for sure. I was super excited to abolish all powder blue and opted for classic black for the existing shutters - why buy new when these were (mostly) still in one piece? Plus, Brent learned how to use the paint sprayer in the process!

Not only does the refinished door look and feel amazing, but the "extra custom" (Home Depot's terminology) storm door allows it to shine.

So there is my not detailed summary of the door and shutters :) If you have any questions about the technical details - leave a comment for Brent below!
